The "kids clinic" is to give back to the community, but it is also about valuable on the job training for future hygienists.
Katrina Porter and her daughter Key Lee took advantage of a free cleaning at the 4th annual kids clinic. It was Key Lee's first cleaning.
"We've been learning a lot about how to cope with working with children. It is more difficult with them being wiggly. But it's just been great to be able to have this opportunity to give free dental work to all the children in the community," said student Katy Clark.
"They are more focused on the patient and less on the time than most dentists offices would be, or at least that's my experience. So it takes a little bit longer, but the value for the patient is a little bit better, "said Porter.
The kids clinic is free and still taking appointments for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
